Co-curricular activities and clubs enrich the schooling experience for our students and allow them to pursue opportunities they might not access otherwise.
Participation in one club each week is compulsory for Primary and Secondary students (Years 7 – 9) and enables different year levels to interact and form friendships in an informal environment.
Primary children with bundles of energy can join sporting clubs such as volleyball, netball and cross-country while others can put their creative talents on show through dance, cartoon character creation, speech writing, Mac movie making and recorder. Numero club, debating and chess are available for those who want to build on their academic strengths. Artistic senior students can participate in make-up artistry, visual arts projects, dance, and creative writing.
Students who wish to play a musical instrument have numerous options in the Victoria Morgan Arts Centre green room. The Arts Learning Area offers a wide range of Instrumental and Vocal Tuition with lessons being conducted by visiting specialist tutors.

Students are privileged to have access to the only international-standard, purpose-built rowing, dragon boating and kayaking facility in Western Australia through the Rowing Club.
The school is on the doorstep of the Champion Lakes Regatta Centre, which provides a fun and safe facility for students in Years 7 to 12 to learn how to row. Coaching sessions led by experienced instructors aim to increase the confidence and competence of new rowers to enable them to get the most out of their experience on the water. Rowing provides a low-impact, whole-body workout and promotes teamwork and commitment. The Inter-House Rowing Regatta is a feature of the Term 4 House Calendar.
John Wollaston is extremely proud of its Equestrian Team. Our students represent John Wollaston at eventing competitions across Perth, showing their skills in the disciplines of dressage, cross country and show-jumping. This test of all-round horsemanship is where the strength of our riders comes to the fore. Their passion for the sport is such that they regularly give up their time on weekends and during school holidays to train and compete. A three-day competition held during the Term 1 school holidays consisting of competition in the disciplines of dressage, showjumping and showman (a combination of ridden and in-hand presentations), for students from Years 1 to 12, is the biggest Inter-School competition in the State, with around 300 riders, horses and families taking part.
